The Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves are the leading contenders to win the 2024 World Series, according to the VSiN Baseball Betting Primer.

The 2024 regular season begins March 28 for most teams and ends Sept. 29.

However, the season officially opens March 20 with a two-game series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres in Seoul, South Korea, the first-ever Major League Baseball regular season games in that country.

The postseason is set to begin Oct. 1, with the last day of the season, if the World Series goes seven games, scheduled for Nov. 2.

  • Colorado Rockies +40000
  • Oakland Athletics +40000

The Rangers won last year's title, but, according to Adam Burke, managing editor, VSiN.com, the Dodgers are atop the list this year, having gone on “quite a spending spree this offseason.”

As Burke notes, the Dodgers signed Shohei Ohtani, who won’t pitch this season as he did for the crosstown rival Angels, and Yoshinobu Yamamoto, among others.

“They ‘won’ the offseason in a big way by securing Ohtani and Yamamoto,” Burke writes, “so they are the rightful favorites.”

The two teams with the longest odds include the Athletics, an American League franchise set to begin play in 2028 at a stadium to be built on the Las Vegas Strip where the Tropicana hotel-casino now stands.
